“A bit of quietness in the busy Muslim quarter”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

It was such a joy to find this traditional courtyard in the busy Muslim quarter. We went in one late afternoon and also saw the puppet shadow show which lasted about 20 minutes. The complex is very pretty with little nooks and crannies here and there. This complex still has a lived in feel to it and is also well maintained. Highly recommended. You can also explore the busy Muslim quarter right outside, and the Mosque around the corner. This attraction is by far my favourite of Xian.

“Also known as the Ancient Folk House”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2012

Simply beautiful old Ming/Qing Dynasty house complex. The condition is splendid. You can buy tea and go to a puppet show here as well. Me=I just walked around the complex and marveled. So quiet and peaceful-you can't hear the vendors of the muslim quarter outside. It's relaxing, and really inexpensive. This is a true gem in Xi'an. Many rooms are opened for your pleasure. if you love classic Chinese structures=then this is the pace for you. Enjoy!
